This first review focuses on one of the first few bottlings under The Single Cask Range and it showcases an Auchroisk which was distilled in 1991, matured in a single bourbon hogshead for 21 years before being bottled at a cask strength abv of 48.4% back in 2013.
So, let's dive right into the review!
The Single Cask Auchroisk 1991 21 Years Old (48.4% abv)
Nose: Easy and approachable, this fuss free drinker is soft with gentle malt, some high register florals and grassy notes; though its subtle complexities need time to open up. Palate: Remarkably youthful for its age, the palate is light and bright with a fair amount of unripe fruit and zest paired with a very light spiciness. This whisky goes down easily. Finish: Finishes on soft malt and some floral notes.
This expression is available in very limited quantities by the dram at The Single Cask and there are a small number of bottles which can be purchased from the bar itself. Please note that both drams and bottles are subject to availability.
